Hi psnell,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: water does not drain out

If the motor runs but it won't empty then the pump needs replacement. If the unit washes but the motor won't come on to empty then you have a control problem. The pump is under and requires removing the d/w. The control is in the top of the door. You might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repair man. If the d/w has some years on it you may compare the costs of repair verses replacement.

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

I see that you need assistance in draining the remaining water out of your Frigidaire dishwasher. It is normal for a little water to remain inside of your dishwasher. If it is more than two or three inches it could be a draining issue. I would check to make sure the drain hose is not clogged or restricted. You should also review the filter, which you can find under the bottom rack, to make sure that it is not clogged. If you have reviewed these steps and water still remains it could be a possible issue with your drain pump. I recommend having a professional technician out to perform repairs because this will require you to uninstall and disassemble your dishwasher. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire gallery dishwasher model#DGHD2433KF1 water droplets remaining on top lower water not draining all the way leaving an odori

Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Frigidaire Dishwasher

A common problem with dishwashers is the non-draining machine. If you are having trouble, check to see if the drainpipe and sink trap are clogged. If you still have drainage problems after doing this, check your drain hose to make sure there are no kinks or bends. if the hose looks worn out you can replace the hose pretty inexpensivley. if your have thoughly checked from dishwasher to trap under the sink where your dishwasher should drain to and it seems clear you may have to call in the repair man.

Dishasher does not drain

If it gravity drains, but the pump does not push out the water.......replace the drain pump. I just repaired an 8-year-old  Frigidaire dishwasher with this very problem, and although it sounded like the pump was operating, it was was just vibrating. I replaced the drain pump and it now works perfectly. I am a service tech with 38 years experience.
